 Hi, I just received my 2016 maxed out MacBook Pro w/ touchbar. In addition, I will be purchasing a maxed out iMac once one is offered with thunderbolt 3. I'm coming from the PC world using Sony Vegas Pro & DVDA. I'm currently diving into FCPX & Motion. I mainly do personal video's from 10 minutes to an hour of 4K and/or HD 1080 footage in the time line. I'd like to add, I multicam (only two camcorders) at times as well. I use plugins, effects, chroma keying, music. My equipment only consists of the following;                     Sony XDCAM PXW-X70 w/ 4K, XAVC L(GOP) & AVCHD 
Sony RX100 V w/ 4K                                                                                                                                             GoPro Hero 2 (HD)                                                                                                                                                 With that being said, I'm interested in the 
24TB Pegasus3 R6 Thunderbolt 3 configured in RAID 5 for my video editing drive. I'm also considering a 12TB Pegasus3 R4 Thunderbolt 3 configured in RAID 5 for my backup drive. I would like some advice from those of you that have a simuliar setup? I don't want to do a big overkill in what's needed but, I also want smooth video editing without hiccups. If you have any advice in regards to setup, RAIDs along with your setup, please let me know? Your advice and/or help would be most appreciated. Thanks, Ray

Hi Ray,

You can use RAID 5 configuration and it is one of the commonly used RAID used for Video Edting. Depeding on the storage space you will need , you can either go for Pegasus 3R4 or Pegasus 3R6.

Thanks !
